Understanding Your Child’s Individual Education Plan (IEP)
Understanding your child’s IEP can seem like a challenge-but it doesn’t have to be! Learn what it is, it’s importance, and how to prepare.
Join Family Connection and Dr. Susan Thomas, retired Special Education Director, for a thorough introduction to the Individual Education Program. The IEP serves as a road map for special education students ages 3-21. We will discuss the steps of the special education process and learn key terms, gain an understanding of the roles of all members of the IEP team (parents and caregivers are an important part!), understand the contents of the IEP and what they mean, and learn how to become a more knowledgeable and active participant in their child’s meetings.
Target audience: parents/caregivers whose children have IEPs, case managers, EIs, social workers
